Everyday Evangelism-September 11, 2009-Thoughts

"Will it be door number one, door number two or door number three?" Those are the words that one would hear while watching a game show in the 60's. That sounds a lot
like how people think their relationship with God should be. They assume that nobody really knows what God is all about, so, hey, lets just pick something to believe in. Maybe it will be right, or maybe it won't. Most of the time, people believe in a particular religion (or denomination) because they were raised that way, or, someone brought them into it, and it served them in some way. I recall a story of a great uncle of mine, who married a Jehovah's Witness. From what I understood, the woman became a Jehovah's Witness because one time she was very ill, and a group of them served her while she was sick. So there you go. Someone reached out to her because she had a need. Too bad we aren't more sensitive to people's needs like that. But we don't want people to come into our churches or fellowships because we served them (although God can use that to expose them to the Truth). We want friends and family to come to Christ because they have been convicted of their sin, and are looking for a way to be forgiven and delivered from their sin. We don't have to make a guess about what God said about Himself and our need for Him. We can read in the Bible how God sent His Son to us, to deliver us from our sin. He became the Ultimate Sacrifice for our sin. There is a reason why we believe in Jesus. And we can know what we believe in and why we believe it. It is not a guessing game without any information given to us. Jesus said that He is the way, the Truth, and the life and no one comes to the Father but through Him. How much clearer could it be? We know which door to pick. It is not door number one, two, or three. Jesus said that He is the door. The choice is now clear. Which door will you pick?
